Police ID 3 killed in separate Jacksonville shootings Saturday
Homicide detectives called in backup team to help investigate
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Police are investigating three shootings in less than six hours Saturday in Jacksonville that left three people dead and another injured.
The first shooting occurred at about 10:30 a.m. on the Westside. Police said 41-year-old Sitoria Davis was found dead just outside the front door of a home on Rusty Lakes Lane, off Normandy Boulevard. Late in the day, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office announced they had charged Natosha Bailey, 46, with murder.
The second fatal shooting took place before 3 p.m. off Moncrief Road near the Ribault River. Police said 27-year-old Ronald Jenkins was fatally shot on Ken Knight Drive in an apparent drive-by. He was taken to UF Health Jacksonville, where he died. Police said they were looking for a black SUV involved in the shooting.
About two hours later, two men were shot outside an "at home" barbershop in a home on Matthew Street at Goodrich Road, near Wilson Boulevard on the Westside. Police said 19-year-old Ziykye Lindsey Ray Barnhill died at the scene and the other man is expected to be OK.
With three homicides in one day, detectives had to call in a backup team to help investigate.
"We don't expect it, and we don't hope it, of course," Sgt. Adam Blinn said. "It's a responsibility that we have with our unit."
Police need the public's help regarding information for the shootings on Ken Knight Drive and Matthew Street. Anyone who may know what happened is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS (8477).
